SPO default forms sizing with PowerApps

 

Hi All,

 

I have created 3 PowerApp forms (New, Edit and View) with SharePointIntegration for a contact list we use. I added 2 fields to default list view and tried to add those columns (fields) to the Edit form (I haven't messed with the New or View forms yet), but I can't seem to get the form to resize properly. I have increased the Height parameter to 1000 pixels, but the actual edit form won't scroll down to see the additional fields.

The default DataCards all seem to be 86 pixels in Height, but it won't let me edit that value -- I was trying to decrease them to 80 pixels or less, so I could fit them all on screen.

On the PowerApp design screen, I can see the lower fields, but I can't scroll down there, resize the white portion of the form, or change the heigth of the datacards...

What am I missing here? @Jeff_Thorpe  @iAm_ManCat   Anyone else have ideas?

 

Thanks,

I believe the scrolling issues is caused by the Form height being larger than the screen height. Try changing your Form height from 1000 to 790.

You can make the datacard height any smaller because that is the minimum about of space it needs based on how the controls are laid out in the datacard. You could change the layout property of the form to horizontal which requires less vertical space and would make your datacards smaller.

OK, if I can't make the DataCard smaller, that's understandable, but why won't the scroll bar scroll all the way down to the additional fields which are already on the form?

Yes, I concur with @Jeff_Thorpe on both counts - the size wont go any smaller as it needs that space to display those items - if you shorten your top 'display name' box horizontally to half its size and then move the text field next to that, you should be able to shorten the height of the template datacards.

If you make the height (which equates to Visible height) of the gallery parent.height then it should fill the screen and allow you to scroll down further.
